What is Zumba®?

Zumba® is the latest fitness craze from America.

It combines  African, Caribbean and Latin dance moves with fitness.

Basic dance steps are a taken from a variety of dances such as Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia and Reggaeton.

These rhythms form the basis for a Zumba® class. A more advanced Zumba® programme includes African Dance, Samba, Tango, Flamenco and Belly Dance rhythms.

Zumba® is designed for people to have fun whilst exercising.  Zumba® is exercise in disguise. It actually does not feel like you are exercising at all. It feels like a party!  You can experience so much happiness while moving to the beat of the music.  Yes, Zumba® classes are all about joy and fun.  You do not need to know how to dance.  You do not need to memorize steps.  You just have fun and you get results!

Zumba® was founded by a columbian man called Beto, the story goes like this…. One day upon arriving at one of his classes he realised that he had left his traditional aerobics music at home. Improvising he unpacked some of his favorite Latin music tapes from his back pack, popped them into the sound system, and taught his first Zumba® class!!

Then back in 2000 Beto decided to take Zumba® to America, it was a struggle at first but in 2001 his idea caught the eye of two entrepreneurs, the three men joined together to create Zumba® Fitness.

Zumba® is now all over the world it’s the most fun you will ever have whilst burning those calories.
